 Introduction

We have published details of our 5 year housing supply each year since 2007. Whether the Council can demonstrate a 5 year supply of ‘deliverable’ housing is important as it affects how planning applications for new housing are determined.

Housing Objectively Assessed Need

To establish the Housing Objectively Assessed Need (OAN) for Bolsover District, in 2013 we commissioned in co-operation with our partner authorities of the North Derbyshire and Bassetlaw Housing Market Area a Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA). This was updated in 2014 to take account of the updated methodology set out in the National Planning Practice Guidance. Now, in light of 2014 Sub National Population projections and the Sub National Household projections that were published in 2016, we and our partners commissioned a SHMA OAN Update report and this was completed in October 2017.

This SHMA evidence can be viewed below:

Based on this evidence, the Housing Objectively Assessed Need annual requirement for Bolsover District is 272 dwellings per year, with a base date of 1 April 2014.

2017-18 Five year supply update

We reported the update to our assessment of the 5-year supply of deliverable housing sites to take account of completions and permissions at 31 March 2017 and the proposals contained within the emerging new Local Plan for Bolsover District to Planning Committee at its meeting on 30 August 2017.

However, in light of the SHMA OAN Update report we have carried out a mid period review to ensure we have a more robust and up-to-date position going forward to inform our decision taking on applications for planning permission. This review was reported to Planning Committee at its meeting on 22 November 2017.

Based on this updated assessment, we conclude that we have just under an 8 year supply of deliverable sites for the period 2017/18 to 2021/22. Therefore, the saved planning policies within the adopted Bolsover District Local Plan (February 2000) related to the supply of housing can be given more weight in the determination of planning applications.

Furthermore, as the number of completions since 1 April 2014 has exceeded the requirement for the same period, we now have a track record of delivery against our OAN and therefore in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework we only need to provide an additional buffer of 5% to ensure choice and competition in the market for land.
